Pirates Release Brandon Inge

The Pirates have released Brandon Inge, according to Chris Cotillo of MLBDailyDish.com (on Twitter). MLBTR's Zach Links has confirmed the move.

Inge, 36, was designated for assignment by the Bucs on July 23 after hitting .181/.204/.238 in 110 plate appearances. The longtime Tiger has scarcely stayed north of the Mendoza Line over the past three seasons, hitting .204/.261/.321 in his time with Detroit, Oakland and Pittsburgh. However, his defense has remained strong, according to Ultimate Zone Rating. He's spent time at second base, third base and right field recently, and he even played an inning at shortstop for the Pirates this season.
